ooh, yay! congrats!
ok, well... rest and relax, eat well... and get a big stash of plain crackers and some ginger ale in case you get morning sickness.
erm... and have fun shopping! ( oh and i am a list person, so i would start making lists of stuff you need, stuff not to eat/drink, stuff to put aside for hospital bag, etc. for me i feel like it makes me feel less stressed if i feel like i have things under control as much as possible. this may not be you though!)
also, find a balance between listening to your body/instincts, and worrying about silly little things. it is so easy to worry too much. hope all that helps!

My tip - don't consult Dr Google too often! Ended up scaring myself silly over every little thing.
Good luck to you.
